Behold, Spindrift! SCC’s annual art and literary journal has hit the shelves, undeterred by the COVID-19 pandemic. Typically published in May, publication of this issue — the journal’s 54th — was delayed until September.
“For months it was unclear when, how, or even if the journal would be published,” Spindrift Editor Tim Holsopple wrote in a press release. “Our experience was distilled into the art and design of the cover, a subtle reference to the present and foreseeable future of invisible challenges and self-quarantines.”
The journal contains entries from 78 contributors of various backgrounds, including Ebbtide Editor-in-Chief Nova Clark and Visuals Director Erin Krogh. It totals 148 pages, with 100 art pieces, 43 literary works as well as links to seven audio pieces and two videos.
If you wish to buy a copy for yourself, you can do so online at the SCC Bookstore, or in person at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park. You’ll find it in the “literary anthologies” section. Each copy runs $15.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story stated that contributors to Spindrift were all current and former SCC students. The Ebbtide has since learned this is inaccurate. Additionally, due to an editing error, a prior subhead misstated the number of the edition published in September. It was the 54th, not the 45th. We apologize for the errors.
